Free Training for NKY Providers
4C for Children has developed virtual training to help meet your professional development needs. These sessions are approved for Kentucky Credit, FREE and involve live instruction. Training will occur using Zoom (a free app that you can download). You’ll receive a meeting link in your email prior to each training. Just like in-person training you have to attend to get credit. In the virtual world that means that if you do not log into the training during the scheduled time, you will not receive credit. See our offerings below. Click on the training title to register.
